The Grandmaster

Inspired by the true story of Bruce Lee's master
  • There must be a better way to feel you ...

Director Kar Wai Wong is generally well regarded, but he had conflicting commercial and artistic pressures for this film, which, while it has garnered awards and wins, is not considered to be his best work. Inspired by the life and times of the legendary kung fu master, Ip Man, the story spans the tumultuous Republican era that followed the fall of China's last dynasty, a time of chaos, division and war that was also the golden age of Chinese martial arts. In essence it is the story of Ip Man's attempts to unite the northern and southern fighting styles, while surviving the harshness of the Japanese invasion. In oriental languages with English subtitles. This film was released in different versions, some more cut than others. SA has the slightly shorter International Version, while the US had much harsher cuts, leading to problems with the narrative, which adversely affected some of the press ratings.
